to regular crash dumps, and the final result is written to
Also added is the '-Z' flag, which instructs the kernel to compress the

has no effect in normal savecore(8) operation, but in theory could be
extended to perform such compression while reading the dump from the
Encryption is unsupported for live dumps.
For example: 'savecore -Lz /var/crash' would create:
